    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Speaking of Bobby Jones, I left this behind this weekend... I could go back and see if it's still there if anyone wants it [​IMG]

    Absolutely you should be complaining about that if it was not disclosed in the listing. It's a significant, if not major, flaw in my book, and the make/model makes no difference unless they're Green or Lobb or some other super-high end brand you got for virtually nothing and don't want to return for a refund. The best solution in cases like this is to decide whether you want to keep them, get an estimate from a cobbler on how much a repair would cost, if it's repairable at all, then have the seller refund the cost of the repair. Otherwise, you can send them back for a full refund, and I'd be shocked if eBay doesn't back you. Not disclosing stuff like that is a major bad.

    No, sorry. I kopped it on eBay for about half of what it would normally go for, an hour after being listed, thanks to a single poor quality pic and a low BIN. :slayer:

    Thrift fit. Suit I purchased from DeadBoy. I guess my initial reaction was a little off. Need to have some minor tweaks done to the suit, but still not bad for an "OTR" fit. :)

    Dude, how tall are you? You look to be six foot twenty, fucking killing for fun.

    Need the sleeves out more, but the suit looks damn good man.

    Yes, that's a gorgeous suit... If it's a bit too small for Samuel then put me down on the list.

    Wow! That's a great suit. What is it?

    Suit was custom made in 1999. Did some research on Trabalza and it appears his work is held in very high esteem. Seems to be all handmade, pick-stitching, buttonholes, etc. I've had it on my mannequin for a few days just admiring it. Giacomo died a few years ago and his bespoke suits started at around $3k. With some minor tweaks, this fits me so not available. Thanks, though.


    That suit is pretty awesome. Details? (Six foot twenty! Heh.)

    Sorry for the lack of detail, on the move at the moment (I blame any typos on Android).

    Damaged shoes cost £21. They're Barkers, unknown model. Auction title said 'good condition', the main listing said 'couple of small marks, nothing noticeable when worn'. (And basically nothing else). I'll get in touch with the seller to try to work something out; I think I would have been getting a solid deal without the damage.

    Thanks for help everyone , and keep rocking that suit 330ck!

    I have the exact same shirt (also thrifted). I had to have the side seams taken in but really like this shirt.
